Well, Damn: Music Legend Say She Is Rejoicing That Joe Jackson Is Dead

Way too far.

Published July 1st

On June 27, Joseph "Joe" Jackson passed away from complications to terminal cancer on Wednesday. He was 89 years old. His death has been mourned all over social media but one celebrity decided to go below the death and celebrate his death.

Bette Midler, 72, is know for songs like "Wind Beneath My Wings" and movies like The First Wives Club.

Now, she is known for being callous and heartless by saying she is happy that Joe Jackson is dead. She wrote on Twitter, "#JoeJackson is d-e-a-d- and Hallelujah!! A monster who ate his own children; like in an old Grecian myth. I hated every minute he lived. All times are strange but this is really beyond the pale. Would Quincy Jones like to weigh in?? Always interested!!!"

  1. Disgusting.

    No matter how she feels about Joe Jackson, it was highly inappropriate to make this type of public comment about him and Twitter agreed. See the reactions below.

Truly deplorable behavior from Bette Midler.

Our condolences go out to the friends and family of Joe Jackson.
